Surveys and Benchmarking

The committee periodically surveys members on a variety of topics, such as drug testing, employee screening tactics, absenteeism & company attendance policies, route driver compensation, T&E and gift policies, HR staffing, voluntary terminations and profit sharing. Each year, the committee prepares the Plant Employee Compensation Report, which benchmarks differences in pay and benefits between various types of linen, uniform and facility services operations for the range of exempt and non-exempt positions.
